In a preview clip from the interview, the billionaire philanthropist revealed that the divorce came after she got to a point in the marriage where she couldn’t “trust what we had”.

Melinda’s admission came in response to a question from King about Bill’s admitted infidelity, to which she said: “I certainly believe in forgiveness, so I thought we had worked through some of that.

“It wasn’t one moment or one specific thing that happened. There just came a point in time where there was enough there that I realised it just wasn’t healthy and I couldn’t trust what we had.”
